WHO YOU'LL WORK WITH

You'll join in one of our locations around the world, working with our McKinsey Implementation (MI) team.

MI is a rapidly growing service offering for McKinsey & Company.  It provides continuous, distinctive support to our clients to ensure they achieve and sustain the full benefits of McKinsey’s recommended changes.

WHAT YOU'LL DO

You will work in small teams with colleagues and clients to build the strategies, capabilities, systems, and processes needed to deliver bottom-line results and ensure those results will be sustained.

Our work is about coaching others to achieve success in implementing new approaches and delivering lasting outcomes.  You'll have the opportunity to manage projects and progress with minimal supervision, including tracking metrics, handling complex analyses, and preparing communications to report back to client and internal leadership.  Additionally, you'll develop practical recommendations and contribute to team discussions on implications of analysis; identifying implementation challenges.

You'll work alongside the client’s staff on each project, assisting with implementation tasks.  This could include facilitating working sessions with front-line and supervisors, connecting with and motivating the client team, or developing skills of McKinsey or client team members when appropriate, principally through coaching.  You'll also solicit feedback from team members to develop your own skills.  Common traits of those successful in this role are leadership, integrity, a sharp analytical mind, creativity, and the ability to work with people across all levels in an organization.
